You have to realize something. 115 dollars isn't just pocket change. You need to spend your money wisely.
At this point, if you are absolutely ITCHING to buy new hardware and see some performance increases, buy a solid state disk with that 115 dollars. You'll see a much more significant increase in performance than you would if you made the transition to SB.
I understand what you are saying, and I do want to buy an SSD, however, I was going to wait until I could get at least a 120GB SSD for $1/GB.
In addition, I don't have an SSD now that I would need to sell in order to upgrade to a new one, so I don't have to worry about depreciation.
My 1055T goes down in value the second BD comes out, so it will be a much more expensive upgrade.
I hear you though. And I'll probably be sticking with my 1055T just because it's difficult to justify the upgrade if it costs ANY more than $0 since my machine does everything I ask it to right now.
It's part of the rush of getting new parts and overclocking new stuff... you just get caught up in it
